The Wait (Italian: L'attesa) is a 2015 Italian drama film directed by Piero Messina and starring Juliette Binoche. It tells the story of a Sicilian mother who lives with her son's fiancée, and refrains from telling the fiancée that her son will not return. The film is loosely based on two works by Luigi Pirandello. It was screened in the main competition section of the 72nd Venice International Film Festival.


Dans les grands salons d’une ancienne villa marquée par le temps, Anna, touchée par un deuil soudain, passe ses journées dans la solitude. La campagne sicilienne, sauvage et d’une grande beauté, entoure la maison et l’isole tandis que le brouillard se lève lentement sur les flancs de l’Etna. Seuls les pas de Pietro, l’homme à tout faire, rompent le silence. A l’improviste arrive Jeanne, la petite amie de Giuseppe, le fils d’Anna, qu’il a invitée à venir passer quelques jours en Sicile. Anna ignorait l’existence de Jeanne et Giuseppe est absent. Il va revenir bientôt, très bientôt..... c’est ce que dit Anna à Jeanne. Les jours passent, les deux femmes apprennent lentement à se connaître et attendent ensemble le jour de Pâques, où Giuseppe rentrera pour la procession.

An archaeological team, digging in a remote village and led by an old professor, unearths an old Roman artifact, a gravestone bearing some mysterious inscriptions. After realizing that they have stumbled upon something precious, the professor collapses with a heart attack. Seemingly dead for people around him, he finds himself in a sort of afterlife state and realizes that the stone marked a passage into the classical underworld so he starts mingling with the antique spirits of the dead. The spirits themselves appear just as silly and petty as the peasants from the village above them, and in their desire to see what happened to their descendants, they find themselves surprised by the modern world of the living.
